Elggren, Leif – “Das Baank” – [Fragment Factory]

dasbaank

Leif Elggren is a Swedish artist, writer, performer, and composer. His latest album, “Das Baank”, deals with themes of economic corruption, repression, and violence.

While Elggren is most known for his spoken word pieces, the tracks on Das Baank have no words or lyrics at all. Instead, they present 8 distinct industrial soundscapes. The album includes gloomy and dramatic orchestral nightmares, gravely static noise bone-crushers, and extended guitar feedback drone blasts.

The liner notes feature long excerpts from the Wikipedia article on “usury”, the practice of making unethical or immoral monetary loans, as well as a stream-of-consciousness essay about suffering and authority and money and power and anxiety and life.
